Outdoor Learning Center

Project Spotlight: Outdoor Learning Center

Creating a Unique, Dynamic, and Textural Learning Space

A school approached Playspace Design with a request for a design that would transform a vacant outdoor space into a vibrant learning environment. This design, approximately 36 feet x 76 feet, was intended for an unused grassy space at the end of the school building. As we do for all of our clients, we created a detailed plan that depicts the finished outdoor learning space. Schools may choose to move forward with completing the entire design at one time, or they can create smaller areas over time as the budget permits. 

When we create an outdoor learning center such as this one, our goal is to create a unique, dynamic, and textural learning space that differs from a gross motor playground. Our outdoor learning environments feature places where kids can paint, read, tend to a garden, put on a play, build with blocks, experience the weather, and play music. It creates an environment that provides children with many different play options.
